This was definitely way too spicy for me! I loved the drama with the main characters but found myself skipping past the steamy scenes 😳.

Mdargusch I thought it might be too spicy for me and you confirmed it. 1y

I think I‘m going to break up with #botm when my credits run out. My box STILL hasn‘t shipped, and I confirmed it on the 31st. 😡 (Image is from Google)

Reviewsbylola Mine hasn‘t either. I have one credit left and then I‘m out of there. I‘ve been so unimpressed with them it‘s unreal. 1y
peaknit Me three. I didn‘t renew when there were no deals to be had. 1y
Melwilk My box hasn‘t shipped yet either, and I also confirmed on the 31st. I wonder if they are having some sort of problem. 1y
Drnkpnkprincess I skipped this month. But I‘ve noticed the past few months have had HORRRRIBLE tracking updates. One month it said it shipped, would arrive on the 6th but didn‘t show up til the 10th and another month it was “stuck” in Las Vegas but arrived at my house before anything changed via their tracking website. 🤨 1y
NeeSwee I wonder what‘s up with them. Their shipping isn‘t great anyway and usually takes at least another week to get to me once it does ship. At this rate by the time we get our boxes, there will already be spoilers for next month!!😒 1y

Hooray for early #botm!!!🎉🎉🎉

Jess7 I can‘t decide. I am either going to get The Book of Essie or skip. 1y
NeeSwee If I hadn‘t read a galley of Calypso, that would‘ve been my first choice...it was great. 1y
allthingskayla I got The Kiss Quotient this month, but felt underwhelmed by all of the choices and even thought of skipping. 1y

This started out so strong for me. However, I found “Especially Heinous” too long and strange, and I never regained my momentum and enthusiasm for this collection. I wish I hadn‘t read it straight through, and had skipped around, saving that one for last. 😕

Sleeping Beauties | Stephen King, Owen King

So, last night I had tickets to see Stephen and Owen King for their book tour of Sleeping Beauties. I had totally lucked out and got third row tickets and was ecstatic. After the event, everyone got a free book and we were told a few would be signed as a surprise. I GOT ONE!!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉
This kind of stuff never happens, and I'm still super excited. It was like winning the lottery, but with books! 😎📚

I am so glad my kids went back to school today and I could spend the entire day lost in this wonderful book! It's definitely one of my favorites of the year and is far and away my favorite selection from #botm.

This was an excellent beach read that I devoured over a long weekend, and an excellent twisty psychological thriller that kept me guessing right until the end! The comparisons to The Girl On the Train will be inevitable, but I actually liked this one much better!

I gave up on this one around 20%. It's really good, but I read this right on the heels of FINAL GIRLS and it's too much horrific crime for me. I'll definitely pick it back up again though. The premise was really gripping...just not the right book for my mood. 😕

I am going to hear Stephen King speak in September! I've read The Shining and Carrie years ago, and these are the two books of his I own (but haven't read). Are there any other "must reads" of his I should tackle before September?

JenlovesJT47 I really like Joyland, Misery and Pet Sematary. Although he gets a bit rambly in PS 2y

The Park Bench | Chaboute

Pickpick

A 300 page wordless graphic novel about a park bench sounds like it could totally be a snore. But, this was wonderful! You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll never look at a park bench the same way again.

Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders

Ok, I have a probably stupid question ?...what is the female narrator saying after she mentions each name in the audiobook? It sounds like "offset," or something. Do any of you guys know?

Suzze It is op. cit. I looked it up while reading the book. "Op. cit. is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase opere citato, meaning "in the work cited." 2y
NeeSwee Thank you! At first, I thought she was saying "upset," to portray each character's emotion. ? 2y
HeatherBookNerd I just started reading it and I can totally see how it would be very confusing to listen to it without seeing the unusual format first. It's more like a play actually. 2y

I loved this pick from last month's BOTM. As Lillian Boxfish walks through NYC on New Year's Eve, she recalls about the events that have shaped her life, and meets new people along her way and impacts theirs. It's a really charming read, and was perfect for curling up with a fuzzy blanket and a hot cup of tea. #botm

Not in the database, but not to be missed is NIGHTLIGHTS coming from Nobrow in March. It's both creepy and dreamy and one of the most beautifully Illustrated graphic novels I've seen this year. If you liked GHOSTS by Raina Telgemeier, you should definitely pick this up.

Suzze Love that cover! 2y

I've been racing through this book like a hot knife through butter (but have to keep putting it down due to ferrying kids about for early dismissals and delayed openings! 😫). I can't wait to see how this resolves itself. If this is an indicator of YA fiction this year, I'm all in for 2017.
